Are you ready for the Apocalypse?
Some of you may be wondering when my new Cross novel, The Apocalypse Ark, will be released. Just keep an eye on the weather. As soon as it rains for seven days straight and the streets start flooding, then open your window and shout “Release the Ark!” in your best “Release the kraken!” voice.
Or you could just wait a few weeks.
The Apocalypse Ark was originally due to be published in January but it got pushed back a bit during the editing process. No one at the publishing house liked those chapters I wrote from the fish’s point of view, so I had to go back and rewrite everything. Sheesh. No, in all seriousness, it was just life with two young sons and a day job (boooooo!) meant it took me a little longer to get through the revisions than I initially thought. Also, I kept endlessly revising, until my editor threatened to harpoon me and mount my skull over the transom as a warning to other writers.
I’m done now. I think.
The Apocalypse Ark will likely be released in Canada in late February. The U.S. release will likely be late March or early April. Because April is the cruellest month. I’m not sure about other countries — check your local book emporium. Those book monks know everything!
But you don’t have to wait to pre-order it — you can give me your money now! In exchange for nothing but some vague promise that I’ve written a book. Sounds legit to me. Please send your life savings to:
Remember, what would Noah do?
